  1. What are the question marks for?

    Infinitive phrases are fine, except I'm not sure about #4. You might need to add the "that" clause to the second infinitive phrase.

    All the appositive phrases are fine.

  2. 2. Don't include a clause in an infinitive phrase.

  3. The question mark was because i wasn't sure of the answer. Not sure about statement - Don't include a clause in an infinitive phrase. is this for #4 (infinitive phrase)? so the answer would be to sing a song and to end the evening (without adding that had been particularly touching to us all)?
